UFC 263 comes live Saturday from Glendale, Arizona, and the stacked card promises a lot of action. These props and picks are sure to turn fight night into payday, so please your bets and enjoy the fights!

Jamahal Hill to win in Round 1 (+210)

Sun, June 13 2021, 2:25 AM

Craig, Paul



Hill, Jamahal



Hill is in the spotlight position and is being built up as a future contender at light heavyweight.

Paul Craig has been beaten around the block, with three of his four stoppage losses in the first round.

The heavy-handed Hill will have no trouble catching Paul early.

Belal Muhammad to win by decision (+110)

Sun, June 13 2021, 2:55 AM

Maia, Demian



Muhammad, Belal



Demian Maia is coming off the second stoppage loss of his career and doesn’t have a lot of gas in the tank. The ground specialist is going to have a lot of trouble with Muhammad’s volume, and Maia doesn’t have the movement to offset his younger foe.

Muhammad may show the veteran some respect, after it’s clear he’s outpacing his foe, which will ensure a comfortable decision.

Leon Edwards to win by decision (+120)

Sun, June 13 2021, 3:25 AM

Edwards, Leon



Diaz, Nate



The only thing Nate Diaz has in his favor against Edwards is his chin.

Edwards is the better all-around fighter and shouldn’t have any problem keeping the smaller, older, and inactive Diaz at bay.

Try as he might, Edwards will push for a stoppage, though he’ll settle for a decision on the cards.

Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Brandon Moreno does not go the distance (-132)

Sun, June 13 2021, 4:10 AM

Figueiredo, Deiveson



Moreno, Brandon



Whether it’s the heavy hands of Figueiredo or the submission skills of Moreno, this fight can end at any moment.

If we get another war, like their first bout, a stoppage is a certainty.

Moreno is a live underdog, and Figueiredo can stop him with strikes or submissions.

Israel Adesanya by KO, TKO, or DQ (+188)

Sun, June 13 2021, 4:55 AM

Adesanya, Israel



Vettori, Marvin



Adesanya and  Marvin Vettori went the distance in their first fight, but it was Adesanya’s striking that earned him the narrow win.

The grapple-minded Vettori may try to emulate Jan Blachowicz’s game plan but lacks Blachowicz's size and power, which leaves Vettori an open book for Adesanya.

Expect Adesanya to pick up where he left off. He'll pound Vettori out to draw a stoppage in the main event.
